ADD, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders
There has been an explosion in the number of children and adults who are being diagnosed as having ADD, ADHD or are being placed on the autism spectrum. The reason for this is not entirely known, although we suspect a combination of factors including food sensitivities, reactions to vaccinations in susceptible children, exposure to toxic chemicals, heavy metal toxicity, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and gastrointestinal dysfunction, often including yeast overgrowth. Dr. Krassner uses an individualized approach which includes but is not limited to therapies recommended through the D.A.N. protocol (Defeat Autism Now) to address the needs of each person. She uses many modalities including nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplementation, herbal medicine, homeopathy and functional medicine, depending on the child. She also treats adults who fall into any of these areas whether they have received official diagnoses or not.
